Description

Howard Chandler Christy: Fly with the U.S. Marines 1920.  Gripping the leading edge of an eagle’s wings, a Marine takes a trip. A DeHaviland-4 fighter-bomber dives at the same angle directly below him. Poster is so rare that the Marine Corps Museum, owner of the painting on which it was based, didn’t know it existed until seeing a photo taken in 1921 showing the poster pasted on the side of a DH-4. 30×20 near mint, conservation backed.
